Fly from Dublin to Rome and board your ship Explorer Of The Seas for a nine night cruise to Greece and Italy.
Follow in the steps of gladiators in the Colosseum, make a splash in the Trevi Fountain or explore the stunning architecture of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. In Rome you can lose yourself in fascinating history, shop for gorgeous fashions in exquisite boutiques or savour the delights of pizza, cappuccino or gelato. With numerous galleries, gardens and piazzas – ideal for people watching - you’ll find plenty to do.
Messina is the coastal jewel of northern Sicily. Let yourself get a little lost in the city, as you wander the streets taking note of the history embedded in its architecture. See the famous Messina Cathedral - its dome has stood since 1551. Stroll among neoclassical and Art nouveau scultupres at the Camposanto.
See gorgeous sunsets from the waterfront bars and restaurants of lovely Chania in Crete, savouring dishes inspired by Greek, Cretan, North African and Middle Eastern flavours. Soak up the sun on the beaches of Costa Costa and Agioi Apostoloi or check out Chania’s beautiful old harbour, Venetian lighthouse and atmospheric shops. Nearby there are fascinating ruins and monasteries and dramatic gorges to explore.
Surfing, scuba diving, windsurfing, jet skiing – Mykonos is a paradise for water sports. With its whitewashed houses, iconic windmills and dazzling seas, Mykonos is for relaxation, people watching and fun. Explore the mythological birthplace of Apollo in the ruins of ancient Delos or sip cool ouzo in a beachside bar. For delicious treats, visit the Gioras Wood Medieval Bakery, which still uses a wood fired oven to make bread.
Shop for souvenirs, jewellery, handicrafts and bric-a-brac in colourful Monastiraki Flea Market or explore the narrow streets, taverns and shops of the old Plaka district of Athens. Be impressed by the city’s majestic and awe-inspiring classical sites, including the Acropolis, the National Archaeological Museum and Roman Agora, and savour the delights of Greek cuisine in the chic cafes, bars and restaurants.
The sight of spectacular Santorini will take your breath away. Be spellbound by sun-kissed beaches, cobalt seas, dazzling white houses, bright blue domes and dramatic volcanic mountains. Wander in lovely villages with narrow streets and winding steps, tasting a meze, Greek wine or pastry along the way. Secluded coves, hot springs and ancient settlements only increase the charms of this stunning island.
Smile – you’re in unmissable Italy. Whizz on a zip-line over a 16th-century reservoir or hike around the rim of scary Mount Vesuvius. Sample Limoncello liqueur, salami or fresh mozzarella and explore dramatic Pompeii and stunning Sorrento. In Naples, discover the Royal Palace, the San Carlo Opera House and the Duomo, the city’s Cathedral.
